    Earlier this month, turningpointct.org participated in discussions relating to bridging the divide at Norwalk Community College. It was a casual conservation on how far we have come, with regards to interracial, interdenominational and intercultural marriages and how further we still need to go. A half century ago, blacks and whites were not allowed to get married in many commonwealth states, a strife that presented many with fear, oppression and ridicule.

    Today, the challenge continues and in many other ways. Its not all honky-dory for many who are currently engaged in cross cultural marriages and the social stigma underlining these household relationships have become a common concern for same sex marriages… ‘Bridging the Divide’ at NCC, covered many of these topics and more, see a brief review of the event here: https://turningpointct.org/resources/featured-events/
